Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The unique properties and wide-ranging applications of ionic liquids make them a promising area of research and development in various scientific and industrial fields. However, the ionic liquid community still faces several challenges in exploring and developing these unique solvents for various applications. Collaborative efforts among researchers, industries, and regulatory bodies will play a crucial role in overcoming these challenges and advancing the application of ionic liquids in sustainable and innovative ways. This Special Issue, therefore, provides a forum for researchers and scientists to exchange creative research ideas and unlock the full potential of ionic liquids across various fields of application. The detailed topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Synthesis of ionic liquids
  • Property modeling on ionic liquids
  • Ionic liquid applications in chemistry
  • Ionic liquids in energy and environmental applications
  • Ionic liquids in separation processes
  • Ionic liquids in material science
  • Ionic liquids in biotechnology and pharmaceuticals
  • Toxicity and safety aspects of ionic liquids
